Classic Action Scenes: Street Shootout from Heat

I think this may arguably be the greatest shootout of all time; the sound design is incredible and notice that there isn’t any music once the action begins. It works so much better and makes it more real. It’s almost like you are right there with them. Robert DeNiro, Tom Sizemore and Val Kilmer have just completed a daring heist, which is about to go pear-shaped.

Innocents are getting taken out left, right and centre by Tom Sizemore who will stop at nothing to escape the cops.

So here it is in its entirety: the shootout from Heat.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
